Interaction with Guests
We live downstairs. Guests are welcome to knock on the interconnected at any time for information or a chat. Or guests can be completely private as they have their own entrance.
The neighbourhood is quiet as house is in a residential street. As the bay is quite small, there are never large crowds using the beach. The golf couse & club is very picturesque being on the ocean front. The ocean pool is very popular with guests and with ourselves as it is 5 minutes walk so no need to take anything but your towel and sunscreen.
Nearest drinking venues are the RSL club which also provides reasonably priced and varied meals. The golf club is more expensive but still good value.
Buses within 5 minute walk. No on site parking but plenty of free street parking. Taxi from the airport takes about 20 mins and costs $40-$50
Other Things to Note
If you are a golfer, apparently this is golfer heaven!
We are an easygoing couple and we can say the same for our guests. We expect you would treat the apartment as if you were in your own home and also smoking inside the apartment,
Gorgeous, peaceful apartment. All the amenities you could want. Stunning water view. Helen was a delightful host and if the place wasn't already booked I'd have stayed for longer.
Helen's place was gorgeous. The view was breathtaking. The apartment was spotless and the bed was comfortable. The check in was easy and Helen was extremely accommodating. There is ample parking on the street and the beach is a quick walk down the street. This was the perfect place to land after traveling from Canada. I would easily stay here again and recommend it to anyone.
Helen went out of her way to help make us welcome and helped ensure our stay was a pleasant one despite Sydney's recently wet weather. A quiet, comfortable bedroom and fully self contained and pristine kitchen made for a very enjoyable experience. Thanks again. Brendan
Our stay at Helen's was wonderful. It is an absolute lovely apartment with a gorgeous view. We were only able to stay for 2 nights but wished we could have stayed longer. It's very peaceful and Malabar is a nice suburb.
Helen was great, communication was clear, she showed us the apartment and then gave us our privacy in the apartment with it's own entrance.
This was our maiden trip to Sydney, Australia. From the minute we arrived, Helen was quite hospitable and helpful during our short stay. The exquisite apartment was one of the highlights of our trip, especially the balcony with the fresh breezes and picturesque view of the ocean. If you're looking for something quiet, quaint and serene, then look no further than Helen's place! We'll be back for sure!
We had a wonderful stay at Helen and Sean's accommodation, they are truly lovely hosts. Immaculately clean and tidy and the view from the balcony was fantastic. We would highly recommend staying there, even just to meet the great hosts!!
Helen's place was the absolute perfect spot for a restful evening before heading home from a wonderful week in Oz. The area is peaceful and beautiful, the rooms are spacious and comfortable, and all the amenities you need included - fast wifi, well stocked kitchen, fresh linens, etc. Helen was such a welcoming host and I felt completely relaxed. Malabar is lovely and right down the street there is a very cool ocean-fed pool which is great for a swim. Convenience store nearby and AWESOME balcony view overlooking the shore. I can't wait to come back here sometime!
